They must not be blocked in Japan, because I've gotten them pretty much the time you'd expect them to be uploaded.

They're fine in small amounts. I'd rather get this news from Colbert, et al than weepy Twitter users screaming that we're all doomed.

Good journalism is a ray of light in these dark times. Have to admit I'm not accustomed to it coming mostly from entertainers, though

On the topic of Last Week Tonight a weekly half hour show is nowhere enough time to cover everything that happens in the week.

That's why, since his show began, he has almost always focused on larger issues that stay relevant, instead of chasing the most recent hot news.

The handling of Last Week tonight's youtube channel for international viewers continues to frustrate. It feels like they forget that the rest of the world exists for weeks at a time, until some intern is like "Oh right, I should flip that switch" and then we get 3-4 new month-old videos in a single day.

Seems more likely to be a rights thing for HBO's legally owned content.

Why would a rights thing manifest as sporadic and inconsistent? Obviously there's a reason for this, yes, but it's also just as obviously being mishandled.
